I'm telling you because this problem arises very often: people
install OpenLDAP 2.0 somewhere and unintentionally keep
using the default OpenLDAP 1.2.X stuff in /usr/bin ...
I tried to build a setup following your message, and it worked
correctly: the referral was silently followed by the proxy, with
no problem.

Could you add the exact content of the directory (e.g. the root
of "dc=top,dc=com", the referral entry and the corresponding
entry on the referred server?
